Life on the Edge

Life on the Edge

A ‘throw-away’ shot of a tiny bug about to take flight on the edge of a fence post, perpendicularly juxtaposed against the moss. I like the way the fence line seperates and allows to flow off the division between sky and land in the background, and am particularly pleased with the color gradient that is at work here. I think that I will enjoy this shot than most of my visitors.
